Reviewer cites comfortable seats, good flight crew in profile of United business class

In a new review, eTravel Blackboard has said that United Airlines' business class cabin can compete with the luxury of long-haul travel on renowned carriers from Asia and the Persian Gulf.

According to the source, the business class cabin on United's jets occupies space on both the main and upper decks. In the upstairs cabin in particular, business class carries a sense of "extra privacy [that] supplements the quietude."

Seats in both the main and upper business class cabins are arranged so that they face both the front and rear of the plane, and dividers are in place between each row to offer more privacy. United's lie-flat business class seats are reportedly the first of their kind in the U.S., and premium passengers are able to enjoy a wide range of entertainment options on 15-inch screens.

The reviewer also cites United's flight crews as an important part of his positive business class travel experience. He writes that unlike many Asian and Gulf carriers, United keeps its career-oriented flight attendants, allowing them to accumulate experience. This allows them both to provide service bolstered by knowledge they have accumulated over the years and to be a bit less formal, engaging in conversations with passengers that make the flight more pleasant.
